Adding more pieces to the Parlour in The Master Swordsman Pub & Inn

Hello everyone,

Hope you all had a great weekend. Here it's getting hotter just like every year. Have been busy like always with new miniatures at my etsy shop and also with The Master Swordsman Pub & Inn. Before I start, I want to welcome the new followers to my blog and also those at Google +; WELCOME!

As the Master Swordsman is at it's final stages, it's time to start adding those extra details. There is still a lot that I want to add.

The Parlour

The new additions that I added were three pieces of furniture to my favorite room the parlour. These were kits by Melissa Miniatures from The Netherlands. I have built and painted them to match with the other pieces.

I always enjoy building these kits and they do look authentic.

I used the largest one as a hall table. This one turned out quite a nice, piece especially using a marble top for it. I have also painted a pewter miniature Stallion in bronze effect to put on top of it.

The next piece was a very small side table which I placed close to the fire place. I have painted it in dark brown and used lighter shades of brown for the top and drawers.  This will be holding the detailed phonograph that my father built and painted.

Among the other items that I added to the room was another picture printed on canvas of my father, which was placed on the fire place mantel.

The final piece was the tiny coffee table, painted to match with the other furniture. It's quite small and I decided to put it between the two armchairs. 

As this was the parlor, I wanted to add the chess board game. A few years ago my father had painted the tiny chess pieces but I never got to use them for any of my other projects. I thought that this would be ideal and I got myself busy and made a chess board just for the set.

The chess pieces are very tiny and very patiently I have placed the pieces in their rightful place.

I love the tiny chess set especially now that it had it's board and it looked just right in it's place on the small table. 

Here are a few photos of the whole room so far.

This is all for today. Hope you like what I have done so far to this room. Keep tuned for the next update on this project.

Take Care and See You Soon.
